What does it mean to be white in a society that proclaims race meaningless yet is deeply divided by race?
Dr. Robin DiAngelo will describe the way race shapes the lives of White people, explain what makes racism so hard for White people to see, and identify common White racial patterns that prevent us from moving towards greater racial equity. Weaving information, analysis, stories, images, and familiar examples, she provides the framework needed to develop white racial literacy.
Transracial Adoptee, and Amara Post-Adoption Program Manager, Angela Tucker will address the racial water from the social position of a transracial adoptee. Together they will facilitate a training aimed at increasing awareness, and challenging the status quo.
Although the focus is on white racial identity development, people of color may also find the analysis valuable as it is one that is rarely affirmed or provided in mainstream society.
Unfortunately, CEU's/WA State Clock Hours are not offered for this workshop.
